INTRODUCING: LESOUQUE

The Steele Maiden: Top Picks and Early Access to Lesouque

One of my favorite things about traveling is the chance to pick up special items that are native to the places I’m visiting, things that were made by the very people who live there or one-of-a-kind treasures that I know no one else will have. The problem, of course, is that a far-flung vacation doesn’t happen every day. Enter Lesouque. A carefully curated boutique that’s launching mid-June and will be bringing you unique housewares, accessories and more, all made by independent designers across the world. I’m talking London to Austin, Copenhagen to Mumbai, Paris to Turkey.. and just about everywhere in between. Giving you access to the the things that you won’t find anywhere else. So when Lesouque offered me the first look at their goods I couldn’t wait to share (and admittedly I already grabbed that Turkish towel pictured above – handmade in Instanbul! – and does multi-duty as a picnic blanket, beach towel, scarf, blanket… options are kind of endless). For your own chance to be the first to grab some of these special items sign up through the link below. Since lot’s of these are one-of-a-kind you don’t want to miss it!

NEED IT NOW: SPRING SKIRTS

The Steele Maiden: Spring Skirt Shopping

After an early Spring that kept my legs under wraps, I’m on a serious kick over skirts right now. There’s about a million good options out there right now.. but if you’re only going to get one (or, hey, why not make it 9), make sure it’s one of the above.

p.s. French Connection is 30% off sitewide this weekend, making it the perfect time to pick up this floral midi and black mini. Plus, all skirts (and dress & accessories!) are 40% off right now at LOFT meaning you could pick up this pink jogger for a dime.

EASTER DRESSES UNDER $100

The Steele Maiden: Easter Dresses under $100For me, it always really feels like Spring once Easter is here. Tulips on every corner, pastel candies in every shop and – probably most excitedly – Spring dresses to be worn. The weather is having a hard time making the turn here in New York, but I’m a firm believer in the power of a great dress. So perhaps one of the above, will do the trick? And if Easter isn’t your thing – these options would be great for those spring wedding/ shower/ brunch/ birthday invites. Or, since all are at less than $100 you can pick one up simply to celebrate the return of bare legs. I’m torn between the all out femme of this one or the simplicity of this one.

NOW TRENDING: MARBLE

I had a post on fringe accessories all planned for today.. but then late last week I spotted this bag. And then, there were these earrings. And suddenly – the only trend I cared about for Spring was the gorgeous organic with an edge look of marble.
